LeBlanc will discuss how his inspirations and ties to North Carolina work with fibers, fabrics and technology to create fashion. When developing his new collection, he traveled across the state to search for North Carolina-based design and textile resources. As a result, his collection includes fabric from Tar Heel textile mills, as well as fabric designs custom printed in Durham. 

The fashion designer’s work has been featured in Marie Claire, the Chicago Tribune, The New York Times and USA Today

LeBlanc is an assistant professor in the College of Design at N.C. State University. He is the faculty advisor for Art2Wear, a student-organized runway show that presents fashion, costume and wearable sculpture created by the students of the College of Design and the College of Textiles.
